When it comes to problems within the black community, police as the last thing they need to worry about. Look at the statistics, and you’ll find that a law abiding black person is more likely to be struck by lightening than shot and killed by police. Those wouldn’t be the statistics you’d think we’d see if a strain of systemic racism was running through our police departments.
Violence in black communities is only a symptom of a larger problem: urban poverty, poor inner-city schools, and gang violence. Fight those problems, and you’ll solve the problem of violence in those communities.
Of course, nobody wants to acknowledge that, especially Democrats. They’d rather keep those communities poor and dependent on welfare, and thus voting Democrat forever. Make people self-sustainable, and they’ll no longer vote for the Democrat establishment. Make their communities safer with education and jobs, and they’ll never get to push gun control (even though most of these crime ridden cities already have strict gun control).
And even those in government who aren’t in elected office don’t want to address these problems. Instead, like everyone else, they’re just opting to blame the police. As Weasel Zippers reports:
After Chicago Public Schools added a more robust black history curriculum three years ago, some educators and officials with local museums said the district still isn’t doing enough.
Lynn Hughes, founder of the National A. Phillip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum — a museum that showcases the history of The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, which is widely recognized as the nation’s first black labor union — believes CPS does a poor job of teaching black history to its students.
“For a very long time, I’ve been trying to interact with Chicago Public Schools. Our kids aren’t getting a fair distribution of black history. They don’t know their own history,” Hughes said. “When kids come to the museum, they are touched by what they didn’t know. The young people who had no idea of this history we were never taught about these people.”
Trust me – they don’t want to teach black history to these students. They want to twist a revisionist version of black history that’s presented through a far-left ideological lens which only furthers a culture of victim-hood. In America, the most oppressed place a person can be is in their own head.
And is this really what we want to spend class time studying? Not math or science, which are the two most important subjects when it comes to whether or not you’ll earn a decent salary later in life? Whether it’s intentional or not, further degrading the quality of public education will only continue to foster a permanent underclass in America.
